Thread: Need some advice please

    Default Need some advice please

    I have the audigy 2 ZS sound card. I have the logitech Z5500 speakers. I want to know when I am trying to listen to a dvd with Dolby Digital I don't get the sound out of the middle speaker. What am I going to need to complete my sound to make it true 5.1? I am feeling kind of stupid right now because I can't figure it out.

    The Audigy2 does support up to 7.1. It requires 3 connections to the soundcard. Two are for the front/rear left and right, another is for the center front/rear. Those speakers also have internal hardware decode of 5.1, this requires a digital (optical or spdif) connection.

    You need a real soundcard. No Audigy soundcard will output true Dolby Digital sound. Get an Auzentech HDA series card. They output true Dolby Digital Live out the Coax and Optical S/PDIF. I have one of those cards on the way for my system. EAX support sucks, but I am more into surround sound than game voices.
